All Good At Good 2 Go
By Luann Dallojaconol/ firstname.lastname@example.org
Sometimes, you just want your food in a jiffy,
and delis are often that go-to spot, especially when a quick
lunch during the work day is in order.
Enter Good 2 Go Deli on Woodbury Road in
Huntington. Its staff is quick, the sandwiches are inventive,
and everything weve had there so far has been delicious.
Large lunch boards boast a chopped salad bar, homemade soups,
and sandwiches, heros, Panini and wraps with Boars Head
cold cuts. The cold salads look fresh and enticing on the
other side of the glass. They also have bagels, homemade cream
cheese, eggs, pancakes and French toast on the breakfast menu,
as well as Hebrew National specials like corned beef, pastrami
and knishes for lunch.
After having lunch on-the-go from Good 2
Go a number of times (although you can enjoy your food at
one of the tables outside), weve learned a few things:
The heros are all good-sized sandwiches; anything with their
chicken cutlets is a sure winner; and it pays to try one of
their unique board specials. They also offer free delivery
on orders of $15 or more.
Although we suspect everything is good, here
are a few of our favorites:
The San Juan ($7.25) is full of flavor, with a grilled chicken
cutlet, grilled onions and melted pepper jack cheese on a
garlic hero. The cheese has a nice kick to it, and the flavor
of the onions really brings out the garlic in the bread.
The Chicken Bacon Bomber ($7.95) is the best
of both worlds their chicken cutlet and bacon. The
hero is topped with cheddar, lettuce and tomato with Russian
dressing making for a hearty lunch.
The Huntington wrap ($7.95) is delicious
and refreshing, with sliced grilled chicken, gorgonzola with
a nice bite, a spring mix, walnuts and dried cranberries that
add a touch of sweetness and complement the walnuts well.
Its drizzled very lightly with balsamic vinaigrette,
giving the wrap just enough dressing so its not dripping
We were told the Tommie Bs wrap ($7.95) is a house favorite,
and when we tried it for ourselves we had to agree. With roast
beef, cheddar, lettuce, tomato and red onion drizzled with
horseradish, its at the top of our list.
Good 2 Go also makes excellent Panini, grilled
just right so the things like the cheese melt slowly and vegetables
dont get soggy or wilty. The Venice has been our favorite
so far, stuffed with Genoa salami, melted mozzarella, red
onions, olives, roasted red peppers, oregano and oil and vinegar.
The cold salads entice from behind the counter.
Our choice is the macaroni salad, covered in a tasty mayonnaise;
its the best weve had in a while. The Penn Dutch
potato salad is also a nice sandwich complement, with red-skinned
potatoes and boiled egg thrown in the mix.
With picnics in the park and trips to the
beach on your list of things to do this summer, Good 2 Go
Deli would make for a nice stop along the way to stock up
for your day. True to the name, they leave you good to go.
